Indie software engineer Oren Meiri today unveils air-Draw 1.1, his latest drawing app for iPhone 4. Powered by the built-in gyroscope of the iPhone 4, air-Draw monitors motion of the device and converts it to strokes in the drawing. The user moves the iPhone as if it is a laser-pen, drawing on an imaginary large canvas suspended in the air. By translating movement to shape, air-Draw enables a new form of creative expression. Users can save to Photos, email friends, share on Facebook, or tweet.


Tel Aviv, Israel - Independent software engineer Oren Meiri, today unveils his latest app, air-Draw for iPhone 4. Powered by the built-in gyroscope of the iPhone 4, the app monitors motion of the device and converts it to strokes in the drawing.
